Sacco and Vanzetti: The Men, the Murders and the Judgment of Mankind
On April 15, 1920 two payroll clerks in Braintree, Massachusetts, were brutally gunned down during a robbery. Twenty days later, two Italian immigrants, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti - card-carrying anarchists in an era of Red scares - were arrested, Convicted in a controversial trial, they spent six years awaiting execution. On August 23, 1927, while the whole world protested, Sacco and Vanzetti were executed.
"Brilliantly conveys the atmosphere, the drama, the excitement surrounding the case of Sacco and Vanzetti."
"Bruce Watson's spirited history of the affair does a great service in rescuing fact from the haze of legend."
"An unusually even-handed look at a case more often politicized than understood."
